Terra Nova's clinical staff often use evidence-based practices (EBPs) to provide services to the children entrusted to us. This means that staff train in and learn the application of treatment modalities that have been proven to be effective, especially in treating certain types of behavioral issues. Terra Nova staff use EBPs such as Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT).

More and more we are learning that early childhood traumas, such as abuse and domestic violence, often are at the root of later behavioral and mental health issues. For our clients referred by Child Protective Services or children in foster placement, these approaches are especially effective.
